,MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Philadelphia Theater Goes to New York By JACK GAVEK . New York, (U.R--Hedgerow, theater and Moylan-Rose valley fall on the ear like a warm summer bieeze, but the repertory group of that name from the Philadelphia suburb with the flowery handle wade its New York debut Tuesday night to a blizzard overture. And to make the occasion even more ironic, the event would have to be in the summery- Bounding Cherry Lane theater. On the stage was Arthur Rich bogging down to exhaustion in a jungle (in the title role of O'Neill's "The Emperor Jones") and outside the theater, both before and after the performance, were 200 hardy souls foundering around in 6 to 8 inches of snow for the sake of THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 1945 tbe drama. Clearioc and colder Wednesday.) The Hedgerow theater, founded and still dominated by Jasper Deeter, has been in operation for 21 years but it took wartime conditions to get it to New York. Normally it operated the year around in its ISO year old home at Rose Valley but gas rationing and the fuel shortage have combined with other things to make life difficult on the home grounds this season. Hence the 100-mile trek to Green- wicli Village for at least a month of repertory. The Hedgerow is a way of life as well as a theater, company. Aspiring young actors were gathered together by Deeter in 1923 to carry out his plan of a permanent repertory company unhampered by the* demands business makes on the commercial theater. Its members live and work together, performing all the tasks necessary to putting on a play, and now there are 155 plays in its repertoire, 40 of them produced at Hedgerow for the first time anywhere. Artists now in the company have service Get Wp to iotcakes-! SERVE'MXIANMA ^~^ AISO IN TASTT MKKWHUT MINB PANCAKE MIX uti rtou* of from 7 to 20 years. The commercial theater has a lot of Hedgerow graduates. "The Emperor Jones" is one of Hedgerow's most popular dramas, having been played many times since Oct. Z1, 1923. Tuesday night Deeter again played Smithers, the cockney trader. He created the role when the lamented Provincetown theater first produced the play Nov. I, 1920 and has lost count of the number of times he has played The Hedgerow will be at the Cherry Lane until Feb. 11 at least, presenting 3 other plays besides "Jones"--"Thunder on th* Left" by Christopher Morley and Jean Black, "Quintan Quintana" by Ramon Kaya, and "Tomorrow's Yesterday" by Jack Kinnard. 1/10TH OF A TOJt . A 200-lb. Holstein. heifer calf was born on the E. R. Wood farm near Spring Hill on Christmas day. Dr. J. W. Winter, Norwalk veterinarian, stated it was the largest calf he had ever seen at birth. The calf lived only a few minutes but was normal in every way. The old European custom of rubbing wax on stocking heels and toes is being revived in wartime America. It makes stockings last longer.

WGHT TO lIJflT ttBAXTlTlES BESEXTCOI PLAN TO TRIPLE CHINA SUPPLIES Opening of Ledo Road Means More Munitions Washington, (JP) ~ Allied officials are shooting for a triple increase in the tonnage ot supplies moving to · China after the new Ledo road is opened in the next two or three weeks. The hope is to put approximately 100,000 tons oj munitions a month into China as soon as the road is in efficient operation. Tremendous efforts to step up air deliveries, "over the hump" from India have hit an all-time high of something over 30,000 tons a month If all goes well on delivery schedules by road and air it may be possible to have a modemly equipped but relatively small Chinese army operating in the Chung- kingr area well before the end of this year. Thus the imminent and successful conclusion of the north Burma campaign has-greatly brightened China's military prospects. But all informed estimates of the situation by Washington officials suggest little improvement in the Chinese political picture. In fact, it may deteriorate slightly under the effects of relative good fortune in the military field. · The main facts in the Chinese political puzzle today are these: 1. Dissident elements in Chiang Kai-Shek's Kuomintanp party are ratnine increasing- strength and the 15 to 30 old-time conservatives ·who often have been blamed for looking: after their party Interests rather than the ultimate welfare of China no longer are in secure control. 2. Chiang himself remains the only real national leader in China. \merican policy, while welcoming the upsurge of the liberalizing malcontents within the party is devoted to supporting and work- ng for him. 3. Nevertheless, President Roosevelt's representatives in Chnnj- dng, most notably Ambassador Patrick Hurley, are constantly putting pressure on Chianj to eet together with'the communist elements in north China and add their resources to the Chinese war effort Two or three months ago there was considerable hope here that an agreement would be reached between Chiang and the communists to end the struggle and complete China's unification. Now that the military outlook is so vastly improved the Chung- king government is believed to have stiffened over the communist issue. The communists, meanwhile, since they also are growing in strength and enjoying a kind of indirect American support, are in no mood to compromise either. Eleanor Roosevelt Buys 4th Inaugural Dress; Won't Comment on 5th New York, (U.RX--Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt purchased her 4th inaugural dress Wednesday and said it was "just foolishness" for anyone to ask her whether she expected to buy a 5th. "We won't even talk about it," she said. She said she was not excited about the front porch inaugural this Saturday, but that she was "impressed with a tremendous sense of responsibility." "Even the president has a sense of the solemn times," Mrs. Roosevelt said. The first lady made her purchases at the same New York department store where she has bought all her clothes since she was a child. Her 4th inaugural dress was of soft crepe, with a background color titled "Potomac navy" highlighted with coin- shaped inserts of "capitol blue." A three-quarter length coat of capitol blue went with it. Her hat was a navy sailor, trimmed with a bow and a flower and a veiL Oldest Allison Woman Observes 95th Birthday Allison--The 95th birthday anniversary of Mrs. S. Henrichs, Allison's oldest resident, was observed Monday when relatives and friends gathered at her home. Mrs. Henrichs has.good health, except for her hearing. Her daughter, Mrs. Anna Hoodjer, lives with her and caves for her. Mrs. Henrichs is the mother of 8 children, all girls, of whom 4 are still living: Mrs. John Hoodjer, Mrs. Geo/ge Bohner, Mrs. Harold Hartson and Mrs. Anna Hoodjer. She also has 31 grandchildren and a number of great grandchildren. Fala Will Attend Inaugural Ceremony New York, (/P)--Is Fala married? If so the dog has deserted his wife after the briefest of honeymoons. Questioned Wednesday on the whereabouts of the president's black Scottie, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt smiled enigmatically and said only that he was back in the white house and would attend inauguration ceremonies Saturday. Last Monday, she explained Fala's absence from the white house by saying: "He's in the country. We hope he's having a wedding." ELECTS OFFICERS Ridgeway--At the meeting of the Lincoln Telephone Co., Monday, the following were chosen as officers for 1945: President, P. L. Anderson; vice president, Will Soukup; secretary, C. T.
